What is Milford Storm-FC?

 

Milford Storm-FC is an affordable, community-based club (select) soccer program for girls and boys that offers Milford players an opportunity to train and play more competitive soccer close to home over multiple seasons/years with friends, teammates and coaches.  It is part of MYSC and we will play our first season in the Spring of 2019.
 

Vision

Community rooted competitive soccer --- Milford Storm-FC is a new community based club (select) soccer program for girls and boys that offers a higher level of affordable training and competition and enables players to train and play with friends, teammates, and coaches over multiple seasons and years.  Girls and boys teams will be composed primarily of players who live in or go to school in the Milford School District.

 

Milford has a strong recreational program; and we do not plan to deplete or diminish the quality of that program.  It is and always will be the core of the MYSC. By managing a club and recreational program under one organization we believe we offer a broader spectrum of opportunities to help match our players and families with a soccer experience that best fits their interests and needs.


Mission

Growing players – we want each player develop to his/her fullest potential.  We will utilize coaches and trainers who are passionate teachers, deliberate trainers, and patient instructors to advance the soccer skills of our players .

 

Having fun – we believe soccer should be a fun experience for our players and their families.  We believe soccer is best taught in an atmosphere of positive feedback. We believe in celebrating success on and off the field, and encouraging players with positive reinforcement.

 

Giving back – we believe in investing in our community.  We believe it is a privilege to play club soccer in Milford, and that soccer should not be just about ‘me’.  We want our players to see the needs of others in our community. Each team is expected to undertake a community service project each season as part of its investment in the community.

 

Preparing for tomorrow on and off the field – we want the experience of playing club soccer to help build skills that transcend soccer and help our players be better equipped to be successful in life.  We believe participation in Milford Storm-FC can help build character; develop responsibility and leadership; promote self accountability, and teach the value of teamwork and perseverance.  

 

Milford Storm-FC teams will be created over the coming seasons based on the number of players and families interested in playing more competitive soccer and the availability of qualified coaches.  Central to our vision is that should we offer multiple teams at an age group, we will not form a hierarchy with “A” and “B” level teams. Our goal is to keep friends and teammates together over time, and once a team is formed, to keep that group together.


Team Formation

Once approved by the MYSC Board, new teams will hold an open tryout process that includes at a minimum notifying all players in MYSC who are of the appropriate age.  The team coach will be responsible for running the tryout. Once formed the teams will hold annual (and supplemental if needed) tryouts in the for the purposes of filling gaps/vacancies in the roster.  The primary focus will be players who live within the Milford School District, have played in MYSC or attend a school in the Milford school district. In the event multiple teams are formed at a given age, they shall be named as; Red (first team formed), Black (second team formed), White (third team formed).  The teams will not be organized based on a competitive hierarchy.
